imperatricis pulcherrimae Africae occidentalis.

A week and a half ago, Imperatrix pulcherrima Africae occidentalis graduated from Adelphi University cum laude, and with Greek honors, a Bachelor of Social Work. Despite a number of difficulties, her persistence and her dedication to her calling allowed her to overcome an amazing amount of slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, and I am more proud of her than I can say. She is my hero.

After the ceremony we went to a restaurant in Queens, and I enjoyed a most excellent Ecuadorian goat stew.

Congrats again to the Empress. It's very impressive coming to NY and going through everything she's gone through. She's my hero, too.

I'm disappointed, though, you don't give more details on the goat stew.

And what in the hell is Equatorian? I think your Castellano & Latin has messed with your spelling abilities. Do you mean a goat stew from ECUADOR? An ECUADORIAN goat stew?

Equatorial goat stew?

Equanimous goat stew?

Equestrienne goat stew?

It was a lovely Ecuadorian goat stew, with a great sauce on the side.
